Opening Remarks

In our opinion this is property is without question one of the finest properties to come to market in the Doncaster Area for some considerable time. The origins of the building date back to the mid 1600's but more recently the property has been lovingly refurbished and restored by the present occupiers with great attention being given to retaining the many historic features inside. These include highly polished original timber and tiled stone floors, numerous massive original beams to many ceilings especially in the top floor, solid timber doors, shutters to several ground floor windows. There are also many outstanding fireplaces and retro style radiators, served by 2 central heating boilers. The outstanding features of this property are too numerous to list and genuine buyers are recommended to book an early viewing to see for themselves the high quality and attention to detail of the restoration, and of course to avoid disappointment of missing out on its purchase.
The property itself is set within beautifully manicured gardens surrounded by stone walling with extensive lawns and miniature box hedges and original stone gate posts to the front with wrought iron railings. The extensive rear garden has considerable privacy and level lawns with well established flower beds and 2nd enclosed south facing 'paddock' area behinD the garaging with adjacent store place outbuildings.
